Norwegian must pay 110 million dollars for the use of the Havana cruise terminal

MIAMI, United States. — The Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings (NCLH) company must pay 110 million dollars in damages for the use of the Havana cruise port, confiscated in 1960 by the Fidel Castro regime, reported the British agency Reuters.

The ruling against the cruise company was published this Friday and specifies that the plaintiff, Havana Docks Corp., a firm registered in the state of Delaware, will receive $109,848,747.87 in damages.

The report of Reuters indicates that Beth Bloom, federal district judge in Miami, ruled that the use of the Havana cruise port constituted trafficking in property forfeited from the plaintiff.

In addition to nearly $110 million in damages, Norwegian must also pay Havana Docks Corp. an additional $3 million in legal fees and costs.

“Sentence is issued in favor of the plaintiff Havana Docks Corporation and against Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings, Ltd.”, reads the decision to which the British media had access.

Reuters notes that, so far, Norwegian Cruise Line has not responded to the agency’s request for comment on the case.

The Havana Docks company also sued the cruise lines Carnival (CCL.N), Royal Caribbean (RCL.N) and MSC under the Helms-Burton Act, which allows US citizens to sue domestic and foreign companies for the use of assets seized in Cuba during the Cold War era.
